Inspired by Disney’s animated hero, Lightning McQueen from “Cars”, this cake was a little boy’s wish come true for his 3-year birthday anniversary.
Being a huge Disney fan myself, I think I enjoyed making this cake as much as the kids liked to watch it, and everybody else to eat it.
One might think I have an obsession with eyes, but since I worked in an ophthalmologic clinic for so long, I thought I could make a pleasant surprise to my colleagues, on my birthday.
My oversized eye-shaped cake had even an internal alike structure, being described as full of surprises and delicious: beneath the kiwi iris layed the meringue crunchy lens, on top of the vitreous made out of Cola pudding, inviting everybody to an open cake surgery…
I personalised this cake for a little new born baby girl named Melisa, using one of her first photos.
I created a full scale three dimensional cake, delicate, authentic and delicious, of course, and I even used actual melissa leaves to complete the decoration. I found this task very demanding, but extremely relaxing as well.
